Rupert Friend On Being in the Star Wars Universe, Playing a Villain & Getting a Lightsaber

Published on June 11, 2022

Rupert talks about the multiple attempts to kill his character on Homeland, being in the Star Wars universe, playing the Grand Inquisitor in the Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” filming in Tatooine Cantina, his uncomfortable costume, having a double-sided Lightsaber, whether or not he survived the stabbing in the show, his love of playing a villain, and he commends Jimmy’s valiant effort to try and get spoilers.

    Fun Fact about the leprosy joke at the end: Leprosy is actually airborne, so it doesn’t matter if you shake hands with an infected individual. Close quarters conversation is enough for exposure. That being said, infection rates from exposure are much lower than commonly believed.
    Still a scary disease, though, so it’s understandable.
